TWD: Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins


I'm sure you all thought I abandoned my blog but that is just not true. I am back on board with TWD! I have missed a lot and I hope to catch up on a few of the ones I missed.

This week's recipe was a great one to jump back in with. It was super quick and easy to mix together. I am do not love things too spicy and I have a hate relationship with cilantro so I left out the bell peppers and the jalapeno peppers and the cilantro. My husband likes corn muffins but does not like corn. So, I scooped out 6 muffins for him before stirring in the corn. Since, it was only 1/4 of a cup, I didn't cut it in half for the last 6 muffins and in the end I wished I had doubled the corn for just my 6 muffins. I really liked the sweetness of the corn with the spiciness of the chili powder and wished I had added more of that too.

I made these at the last minute so we just ate them by themselves but they would be a great addition to many meals. Therefore, I will be making these again!

Thanks to Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake for this week's selection! Please visit her blog for the recipe! And if you'd like to see the muffins with peppers, check out the TWD blogroll.

Welcome back! I wanted more corn too. Next time my muffins will be 98% corn. and 2% muffin. Yours look great, and you're a saint for catering half of the batch to your husband :-p

I didn't put the spices in mine.

They were great that way.

w00t! Beth's back! Sorry job is kicking your arse :( I agree about doubling the corn. I liked all the bites with the corn chunks but without corn was just ok for me. Welcome back!!
